Now I lay me down to sleep

Recently my sidekick Nick and I visited the Lone Tree school south of Tiskilwa. Right across the road from the school is the Lone Tree cemetery. There's only a couple dozen graves there and it's a quiet, restful spot visited only by the wind and the stars.

One prominent marker has about a dozen names on it, all with the same last name. Are any of them Your relatives?


  1. some ancestors of my husbands on his grandma's side. Richard Anderson M Mary Ammons and they had a dau Minerva Irene Anderson. She M Thomas Harris who was my husbands great grandfather. I've never been out to Lone Tree cemetery so I enjoyed the pict's.

    1. You're very welcome. It's a peaceful spot with hardly any traffic to disturb their rest.


If you have a comment or know of a place that would make for a great future article drop me a line. Thanks!
